Are bloggers supposed to hey their audiences or is that a thing only vloggers do? I’m not sure if when reading this, you’ll see hey and hey back your screen? Okay, I’m beginning to make this a random piece.
Today, on the 27th of October, I’ve decided to write 27 facts… about myself. I’m not sure I’ll get to 27 but it’s definitely worth the try yeah?
Here goes nothing…
#1- I’m a Girl
This is probably the most obvious thing about me, I mean I have the headlights and my! do they shine bright and I have the number plate and my! is it a great one!
If you understood that pun, tafadhali ufisi wacha!
#2- I’m a writer
Well you are reading my blog which means I’m a blogger which means I write because you need to write to have a blog right?
#3- I’m an Introvert
For those of you who may not know, an introvert is basically a person who— wait did I just forget how to describe my own personality?! I need to google this.
Okay, googled. An introvert is a person who focuses more on internal feelings than on external stimulation! Yes, basically that’s me I’m a feelings kind of girl. I seriously feel too much sometimes!
#4- I’m a foodie
Basically a foodie is a fancy way of me saying, I love to eat too much. I mean everytime I’m idle, busy, sleepy, angry, writing, happy… Well basically always, I eat. And when I eat, I eat ALOT!
Wait… I’m hungry!
#5- I’m a little weird
I mean who isn’t? I trully believe we all have a weird part to us and those who chose to embrace it probably live the best lives!
Normal is boring. Normal is overrated. Normalcy is not even a thing! I don’t know how to spell normalcy. Is normalcy a word?
#6- I love all things unhealthy!
If I was told to chose a life of fitness and health versus a life of pizza, Neopolitan icecream and Daima Vanilla Flavored yoghurt then I would probably die of obesity!
Seriously, I have a problem, I need help!
#7- I’m lowkey a really great actress
Have you met those people that were meant to be in the big screens but got born in the wrong continent, wait, no, the wrong country? Yes, yes I’m those people. I’m seriously a great actress it’s not even funny how good I am! In my spare time, I write plays and movies but then I somehow lose them, who is stealing my talent?!
#8- I don’t know why I’m doing this
I feel like I should stop writing this like right now but then I’m watching the voice and somehow Blake Shelton’s face inspires me to write more. Oh dear Mr.Blake, what a nice face you have! … Wait, What?!
#9- I’m a spender
A spender is lowkey a person who hates saving but denies that they have a spending problem.
I’m actually really great at saving, I just haven’t started yet.
#10- I like Mystery
The one thing that draws me to CSI is the air of mystery around it before we find out who killed the vic (Victim). I mean they take you inside the mind of the murderer and how he used this instead of that and why and how the smallest mistake got them caught. I love it!
Speaking of mystery, Discovery IDX is definitely something you want to watch. From finding missing persons to solving murders to having an exclusive of how criminals almost got away with murder the channel is just out of this world fascinating!
#11- I hate tomato sauce
In fancy man language tomato sauce is Ketchup ama there is a difference? Some people I know call it tomato juice. Same difference. It’s red, it’s liquid, it’s viscous ( I hope this means like thick and can’t easily flow. I was dumb at science) and it’s from a tomato or many tomatoes. If I had my way, I’d call it Liquified Tomato.
#12- I’m a phone addict
I’m in love with this guy and I’ve lost him a couple of times, I even sold him once but somehow he keeps coming back to me in different forms, shapes and sizes. He’s got me hooked! It’s crazy!
I have lost close to 5 phones and I think I have used every brand of phone except the Iphone and HTC brands. I’m coming for you!
#13- I once eloped!
At the peak of my adolescence, hope I spelt it right, I ran away from home and since I didn’t have any cash on me, I sold my phone at Githurai for 400 bob, got on a matatu and went to my grandmother’s place for a week.
I left a note and I didn’t want to go back home because I felt misunderstood and all but looking back now, I entirely blame it all on the hormones. #HormonalTeens
I had to sleep on my grams couch for a week! Isn’t as fancy as it sounds if it sounds fancy at all!
#14- I’m REALLY scared of heights
I’m really freaked out by heights. Simple as that! Weirdly, I want to sky dive one day and probably make it a hobby!
#15- I like travelling
This one is kind of tricky. I have places I want to visit and people I want to see but then my bank account really won’t let me and neither will my parents. Apparently, I just can’t put everything on hold and ask for thousands of shillings to travel the continent. I still don’t get why. #AfricanTourGoals
Something weird about this goal is that the farthest place I have been to is 30 minutes away from Tanzania and that was because my grandfather lived in some place we would wake up and see the Kilimanjaro.
#16- My favorite color is purple
I don’t know why but I like me some purple!
#17- My lucky number is 22
Why? Well, because I was born in the fourth month on the twenty second day.
My favorite cousin who shares my name was also born on the twenty second day of the seventh month.
So, 22 is an Ess number.
#18- I blush alot
I hate this about myself but I’m like #QueenBlush! Like you can tell me I have spinach in my teeth and I will blush- well not really but you get the idea yeah?
I once had a crush on a boy, let’s call him E and he spoke to me one day and I blushed so hard I turned red! I swear, it actually happened and I’m not making it up.
So believe it.
#19- I’m a romantic by heart
I am one of the few people in my stupid generation that believes in the old fashion kind of love: picnics , flowers, serenades, little notes , chocolates maybe you could even throw in a teddy bear or four?
These days the most romantic thing this idiets we like will do is… I have no idea! Oh, wait, buy you fries at Kach Fries na MilkShake ya 120 hapo nje or if they go all out, buy you 2 guaranas and smokie hapo nje. #TrueStory!
#20- I hate hair
I find hair tiresome and I miss the good old days when all I had to do was take my hair to the Kinyozi for just 100 bob. The only reason I grow my hair is because my mom really likes it and my hair is her #hairgoals and I wouldn’t want to be the trimmer of anyone’s goals. Ha- see what I did there? Trimmer of goals?
#21- I’m probably going to remember more facts after I’m done
The thing with me is- Well I don’t exactly know what the thing with me is, I actually just thought that would be a great start!
Anyway, I’m probably going to remember much more after I’m done. Right now I have to rack my brain but I swear kidogo after pressing that publish button, the flood gates of my facts will open!
I should do a sequel! I will do a sequel!
#22- I have suffered from Inferiority Complex
Once, a long time ago, I suffered from inferiority complex. The meaning is in the name, it’s a kind of thing where you walk around with the notion that everything is better, prettier, more talented, smarter than you. You undermine yourself and hate your whole being.
It took a while to get out of that hole but I’m glad because it taught me first hand the importance of #lovingyourself.
#23- I’m overly emotional
What this means is that I can be an emotional wreck. I hate having my feelings hurt or getting dissapointed. Sometimes I go a little extreme with what I’m feeling and I make very bad decsions and I just have this big regrets when my mind is not as clouded.
While other people live the moment, I prefer to feel it.
When you feel it, then it gets easier to live it.
#24- I like lipstick
Anytime I have to walk around with no lipstick on, I almost feel naked. It’s a little addiction of mine.
I have full African lips and I like to pamper them.
#25- I started blogging at 17
I’m not even sure but yeah, probably.
#26-I’m a change freak
I do not like things remaining the same. I like change because I have this thing where I easily get bored of things and I just want to change them. I also have a little OCD in me.
I believe I have changed my blogger name a hundred times and they tried telling me not to but all I could think of was, they need to change their minds.
#27- I have mild social anxiety
I’m only beginning to learn how to relate to people and not be so distant from them. I used to dread events and gatherings where people were involved so much so to calm myself down, I would picture the end where everyone just walks away.
My heart always beats a little faster when I’m at places like town and there is such a huge crowd of people. In my head I see everyone of them as a threat and I always try and find the route or side of the road with the least number of people.
I often buy myself half a red velvet cake to calm my nerves and l pretend everyone is as sweet as what I’m eating.
I can’t believe I am done!! It’s finally over and I can sleep now or maybe like 5 hours from now because most nights i suffer from Insomnia which leads to my karaoke late nights, dance offs, movie time, snack time, mosquito kill and count time and stalker time!
